An episode of the variety TV series "Shower of Stars". This episode features Jack Benny, Nanette Fabray, and the Johnnie Ray. Lots of comedy & music. Despite the odd running time, this is indeed complete...(thanks you Spelvin for info on the 5 minutes...oh yeah, and for the record the color version of this telecast is lost) ( 1 reviews ) Topics: Classic TV, Television, 1950s, 50s, Fifties, Shower of Stars, Johnnie Ray, Jack Benny
Not sure of broadcast date. Ethel and Albert do a comedy sketch, Akim Tamiroff does a dramatic sketch, and Kate Smith sings a song. Also a commercial. I have no idea if any other footage from this episode exists. This series seems to exist in fragments. This does not seem to have been registered with the U.S. copyright office. Note: the opening minutes feature noticeable film deterioration. ( 1 reviews ) Topics: Classic TV, Television, 1950s, 50s, fifties, Kate Smith, The Kate Smith Evening Hour, Variety show,...

An episode of "I Remember Mama" called "Madame Zodiac". Picture quality is awful, perhaps even horrific. Actual show is great, perhaps even wonderful. With some original commercials. Episode aired during 1950. A 50s-era show set in the 1910s, uploaded in the 2010s....think about that. May give you the sudden urge to drink coffee. favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 3 reviews ) Topics: Classic TV, Television, 1950s, 50s, Fifties, 1950, Drama, Coffee, Peggy Wood

(97 Episodes) THE BEST sitcom BY FAR!! "The Aldrich Family" is one of those really GREAT and TIMELESS Old Time Radio sitcoms that make you laugh every time you listen to it.
